We have a winner!

In the early part of 2010, we started a contest for a new GNU Mailman logo. Our old logo, donated by the Dragon de Monsyne had served us well for many years, but it felt like we needed a refresh. Besides, we wanted a nice scalable graphic that we could use in many more situations. So we solicited entries and then conducted a poll. Today I am very pleased to announce the winner!
By better than 2-to-1, this submission by Andrija Arsic was voted as best logo by the Mailman community. Congratulations Andrija!
While we have yet to re-brand the website and software to include the new logo, we'll start using it immediately. If you'd like to help with any redesign, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A little bit about Andrija: originally from Trstenik, Serbia and now studying IT technology in Belgrade, Andrija is a self-employed, part-time graphic designer, specialising in the fields of corporate identity (logo) design, web design, print design and branding with the majority of his time spent designing and implementing marketing promotions for businesses such as logos, websites, letterhead, business cards, packaging and more. I'm glad that he also contributes to free software, as I think his winning logo is spectacular.
My thanks and appreciation to all the artists who contributed logos to the contest. All the designs are very nice, and in their own way, capture the spirit of GNU Mailman.
